silent emotion

Aug 31, 2007 | Life in Progress

silent emotion, too tender for words
to express
the enormity
of it all

the blessings, so whole
it mystifies
her heart

she is quiet
with the beauty
too tender for words.

Sending much love,

    Oh, this one is absolutely gorgeous… so peaceful and thoughtful, like she’s pondering something much bigger than herself. she makes my eyes tear up just looking at her.

    Hi Kelly! She’s beautiful! I had a dream about you the other night — it was very clear and real, and also very mundane. We were just having a very ordinary conversation, nothing surreal or dreamlike. Huh. I guess it’s been too long since we’ve talked! I hope the book projects are going well — are you coming to Art & Soul?

    She’s really gorgeous! you’re so good at really imbuing your work with the emotions it’s meant to portray. I can only hope and dream I will be able to communicate emotions through my own art as well as you do, someday.
